Introducing a new class - "Dance for Musical Theatre"
Dance for Musical Theatre will focus on the execution of dance as a method of storytelling. In musical theatre, characters sing when emotion becomes too strong to speak, and they dance when they are even further transported. This class will focus on different styles of musical theatre dance by exploring movement within the musical theatre lexicon. Students will have the opportunity to learn original Broadway choreography, work with local professionals who are currently in production, and explore various aspects of the dance language of musical theatre.
